Marshall Faulk Signing at Macy's Lakewood Mall

Thanks to a tip from my friend Greg aka guccigraphs I decided to check out the Marshall Faulk signing today at Macy's in Lakewood Mall. Marshall was scheduled to make an appearance today to promote Hugo Boss at Macy's fragrance department today from 2-4pm.







With a $75 purchase of Men's Hugo Boss fragrances fans had a chance to meet and take photos with Marshall Faulk and also received an autographed Hugo Boss football.

I arrived a few minutes after the event started at two. There was already of line of about 75 fans waiting for Marshall to arrive.

My goal today was to get my authentic Colts Marshall Faulk rookie jersey signed. Sadly no outside items were allowed to be signed but luckily I had my friend Greg who helped me get Marshall's autograph on my jersey. Thanks again Greg for the homie hookup. Everyone make sure to follow Greg on instagram.






Hideo Nomo

I ran into Hideo Nomo this weekend and he was kind enough to sign my 11x14 photo for me along with a baseball under the MLB logo which is the way I like it. Here he is coaching his traveling team from Japan.


It was nice to add more Nomo items to my personal collection. He was one of my favorite pitchers I looked up to as a kid.


Ladarius Green Signing Presented by Deluxe Signature Collection






Any signed item is $20 and comes with a raffle ticket for a chance to win autographed items from Keenan Allen, Philip Rives and many other Chargers.

Brewers Graphing Recap

Here is a small recap of the autographs I got from the Brewers series this past weekend. In terms of quantity it wasn't much but it was nice to finally get Ryan Braun's autograph in person.

I got cards signed by Elian Herrera, Mark Reynolds, Mike Fiers, Lyle Overbay, Scooter Gennett, and Jeremy Jeffress.







I also got a 12x18 photo signed by Elian Herrera who was surprised to see such a large photo of him. I had the photo prepared for Dodger Fanfest a few years ago but forgot to bring it and never got it signed. I assumed he would be with the Dodgers for a long time but he was always going back and forth from the minors and eventually got released. It was nice to finally get this photo signed by Elian.





My favorite autograph of the day was from Coach John aka "T-bone" Shelby. Before being an autograph collector I collected jerseys especially vintage jerseys and game worn or game issued authentic jerseys. I had this John Shelby Dodgers Game Worn Batting practice jersey in my collection for over a decade since it was worn when he was a coach for the Dodgers. Coach Shelby was even surprised to see it and even asked where I got it. I told him I got it from an auction. He jokingly said I bet you paid $2 bucks for the jersey.









Last but not least it was finally nice to get Ryan Braun's autograph in person. Ryan was nice as can be and made sure to sign for everyone who waited for him today. Earlier this year thanks to my friend Josh I was able to make a trade for a signed Ryan Braun ball on a standard ROMLB on the SS but it's always nicer when you get the autograph yourself in person. I decided to get a 2008 baseball signed under the logo since it was his first all star game. Thanks to my friend Jose I also ended up getting a 2011 all star baseball signed as well which was his MVP year.


Braves and Red Sox Series

I did pretty bad in terms of numbers of autographs in both series. The only autographs I got were from Evan Gattis aka "El Oso Blanco" and Yoenis Cespedes on a 2014 All Star baseball.

Evan Gattis is one of the all time coolest guys you will ever meet in baseball.



Yoenis is also a nice guy as well and is a class act in person.


Autographs from August

I haven't posted stuff in awhile due to pure laziness but here are some of my recent pickups below this past month.

I was happy to add Michael Irvin's autograph to the PC. Michael was kind enough to sign a football for me and also inscribe HOF 2007. He was one of my favorite receivers growing up back when the Cowboys were dominating football in the 90's. In person he is the same guy you see on tv always nice and cool with his fans.






I was also able to get a couple of floorboards signed the first being from another future hall of famer, Paul Pierce and Laker legend and Laker Coach Byron Scott. Unfortunately I didn't have a basketball with me so I settled for a floorboard.






Next up was from one of my favorite boxers of all time, Roy Jones Jr. The last time I ran into him was at Mandalay Bay Casino a few years ago for my friend's bachelor party. Coincidentally he was staying at the hotel while training for his boxing match versus Bernard Hopkins, and was actually on the same floor as our suite. Back then he was kind enough for a photo op with my friends but unfortunately I didn't graph much at the time so I didn't have anything for him to sign.



Today was a special day as I came prepared and got a boxing glove signed by Roy. His handler originally said he couldn't sign gloves but I told Roy I am a true fan and wanted his autograph for years. I even told him to personalize it and sure enough he took the glove and signed it for me in front of his handler.





Last but not least it was finally nice to meet Ozzie Smith aka "The Wizard" in person. Growing up in the 80s he was the most gifted shortstop in my generation. I always wanted to meet Ozzie and finally I got a chance to and he didn't disappoint. Ozzie was kind enough to sign a HOF ball along with a Gold Glove ball for me with inscriptions when I didn't even ask for them.



On a side note I also picked up another Trout baseball with the 2012 ROY inscription thanks to my friend Warren.
